    Though this is loosely tied to the Book Club Badge, you can review and share books that you enjoy here.

    Our next Book Club book will be China Mieville’s “The Kraken”. Mieville is a fantastic writer, who crafts these dense worlds populated by weird fantasy unlike Tolkien or “standard” fantasy. It’s something different.

    The Kraken is his most approachable book, I think. (And certainly less alien than Perdido Street Station, my favorite book of his.) It’s been a couple of years since we’ve read it, so we’re looking forward to digging in again, to experience it.

    Oh, this is just about sharing books that you enjoy, but doing a book review of your own. It can be posted any old time that you’d like.

    Am reading Kracken, but had eye surgery, so am anxious to continue where I left off, about 1/3 of the way through. It has a certain Douglas Adams feel to it that I am kind of enjoying. Please, Daniel, keep us posted as to when the next book club meeting is so that I am sure to finish the book in time!

    Has anyone read “A Natural History of Dragons”? It’s the first in a series of novels about a Victorian woman traveling the world to further the knowledge about wyrms, sea serpents, and dragons.

    I was going to give it away at Shindig, but didn’t finish it in time. It is very enjoyable!
